An Airport Operations Plan (AOP) is the key to make your APOC proactive and data-driven. It expands the time horizon from the day of operations to 6 months in advance, though also integrates post-ops follow-up.
The tool allows to transversally link different all airport processes (pax, bag and aircraft) and timeframes, allowing it to really unlock overall coordination and optimisation on airport level to improve airport performance and increase passenger experience. With targeted modules and advanced technologies, efficient usage of resources is guaranteed long before the actual day of operations.
Brussels Airport started the development of its Airport Operations Plan in 2017 as a tool to support the APOC in becoming more proactive and lift the airport organisation as a whole to the next level in terms of data drivenness. With its AOP, Brussels Airport is seen as one of the frontrunners in Europe.
Different state-of-the-art technologies such as machine learning models, data science and others were applied, allowing the airport to mitigate problems before they even occur. The tool was developed with the end-user in mind, giving him the needed insights and triggers to make the right operational decisions in due time with a minimum of training.
As our AOP is composed of different modules that can all be implemented individually, Airport Intelligence is not only able to support you in the development of your overall AOP, we can also bring you solutions to targeted problem areas.
As such, a modular approach can be followed, where different modules are gradually implemented that all finally integrate into one single Airport Operations Plan.
Implementation at Brussels Airport has proven that it can bring true value to airports:
